As we usher out 2020 and usher in 2021, I am convinced that there are multiple things that will change for all of us. We have had an extraordinary year, and as the politicians love to say “we are in unprecedented times”. Indeed we are, and things continue to be uncertain with change hitting us from all angles. Maybe for you it’ll be your job, your location, a family arrangement or more deeply a destructive mindset and attitude you’ve held onto years. One of the things that is certainly changing for me is the way I serve and edify the Church by using my spiritual gifts online.Read More
A short inspired poem I wrote about placing my trust in God alone, and depending on him for salvation, sanctification and strength through the diverse seasons of life. If you find yourself needing a reminder about His character and promises read this, and also spend the next week meditating in the book of psalms.Read More
